The entire taxation system works state-wise, being the primary source for the budget formation and treasury replenishment. Value added tax (VAT) plays a major role in the national economy. Thus, any manipulations on the tax will immediately affect the economy. VAT raise will adversely impact the economy and result in curbing the motivation of the society for entrepreneurial activity. Raise in the VAT rate may indirectly affect the collection of personal income taxes (PIT) and excise duties because of the higher pressure on the economy and escalation of inflation, lower effective demand and lower level of consumption due to rising prices. Tax novations may lead to serious consequences: increase in the tax burden, higher prices for the majority of goods and services, lower consumer demand, escalation of inflation, a worse situation in small and medium entrepreneurship, a slowdown in economic growth. Subject of the study is the value added taxation. Goal of the research is to prove the necessity and significance of the VAT hike. Methodology. The VAT rates in 2017 for European countries and Russia and indices of industrial production and business confidence were systematized.
